The Blood Detective™ Concierge Longevity Plan A Roadmap for Healing
The term Blood Detective™ exemplifies our "never give up" attitude for those who seek us out to help them find natural and/or traditional healing solutions naturally using advanced technologies, such as our patent-pending Blood DetectiveTM blood interpretation technology designed by Dr. Michael Wald. Dr. Wald is known nationally as the Blood Detective as a sought after health expert having appeared on ABC WORLD NEWS TONIGHT with Diane Sawyer, Channel 11 Pix, Channel Five Fox National News as well as many other television, radio and written periodicals. The reason is because Dr. Michael Wald and his colleagues have created a system that approaches your health concerns in an organized fashion within the context of holistic-mindedness.
What Our Blood DetectiveTM Approach “Stands For” – WHAT WE STAND FOR!
The acronym for our approach is found within our Blood Detective™ name itself. This acronym expresses what we are all about, and how we have grounded ourselves so that we can provide you with the greatest potential for natural healing solutions. We strongly believe that, “it’s impossible to get where you want to go unless you have a roadmap and a plan. Our “plan” is described below.
Each letter in the Word, “B L O O D D E T E C T I V E” speaks for itself…
Five expressions found within the word, B L O O D
We call ourselves, “Integrated” Medicine of Mount Kisco. We are not merely holistic or alternative or complementary in our healing methods and thus our perspective. None of these terms, by themselves, represent our message which is simply this…that there is much to learn and practice in all areas of health and disease care. It is our intention to bring a balanced approach so that you can truly choose how you want to reach or maintain your health and well being.
We all know the value of carefully focused laboratory blood tests. You probably have had blood tests performed by one or more health care providers in your journey to stay and get well. We approach our patient’s needs often recommending blood tests, and other non-blood evaluations, that are more commonly performed by several health care providers, separately with little to no coordination of care and consideration. Not only do we test far more comprehensively than many health care providers, we also interpret your results within our BLOOD DETECTIVETM approach described here. We believe that our approach offers us with a greater possibility of helping you achieve your health goals. We compare your blood results to “clinical ranges” and “functional” or “healthy ranges”. Clinical ranges are the blood ranges that you are used to seeing on a typical printout of your blood test results; you are compared to ranges of “normal” of seemingly well individuals in the population. These clinical ranges are useful for obvious health problems, but are not perfect and often appear “normal” even when you are not feeling well and/or when your doctor says to you, “Sorry, your blood tests are normal…I can’t help you.” Research in many areas of health care has indicated that the “normal or clinical” ranges are often inappropriate and need readjusting to keep up with new discoveries, and…”health goals” as opposed to disease-detection. In short, the Blood DetectiveTM technologies often uses different ranges of “normal” that Dr. Wald calls, “functional, healthy or optimal” that may provide an additive or alternative interpretation of your so called, “normal” blood results.
Our health care team provides thorough consultations and we use extensive symptom and disease-oriented questionnaires so that we may “Integrate” our Blood DetectiveTM technology findings. This objective approach, along with our healthcare providers combined effort brings both an objective perspective as well as our subjective opinions as to how your health concerns should be managed.
Although our bias is to first consider dietary and lifestyle methods of healing, sometimes we combine our approach integrating medication(s) and perspectives and modalities found in many different healing systems. Some of our considerations include: food plans, stress-management, various forms of nutritional supplements, exercise recommendations and referral to other health care providers when necessary; always offering ourselves to communicate with all whom you choose to work with. We will never “put down” conventional medical therapies and approaches as we feel this would be an ignorant and selfish position. We frown upon other health care providers who willingly or unwittingly limit your health care choices – whether they are sourced within the medical or natural healing arts. Ultimately, it’s your choice what, and who, you involve in partnership into your healing plan.
Opportunity is born out of choice. Our Integrated approach to health and wellness provides you with a greater array of choices ranging from medical and natural medicine. Our Blood DetectiveTM Longevity Program melds all that we have to offer you creating something entirely new…an opportunity to create a tailored program for you that you cannot find in a book! In fact, our Blood Detective report is literally a book; summarizing our nutritional interpretation of your blood work. And, this “book” is created just for you!
Our commitment and dedication to your health matches our dedication to our personal health and wellbeing. Therefore, we continually teach, take continuing education programs, develop new technologies and/or employ new ideas. We are not afraid to improve ourselves for both your and our health. We study long hours. A special part of our personalized approach for our patient includes researching your particular symptoms and signs (your health issues) in context with the results of our testing; then, we reach on medical data bases such as the National Library of Medicine to determine the latest findings and breakthroughs that we can apply specially to you. Our dedication to research is often very extensive and is a source of continued learning for us that further benefits you.
Eight More Ways In Which We Try to Help You Found Within The Word…
D E T E C T I V E
We make no promises or guarantees that we will help all of our patients, but we do promise to try our very best!
We are highly qualified in our respective fields holding several certifications in medicine, natural health and nutrition.
We literally invented the Blood DetectiveTM software that allows us to nutritionally interpret dozens and dozens of pieces of laboratory data in a coherent way supporting our comprehensive “Integrated Approach” to your health and that of your family and friends.
We really do try and put ourselves in your position. We understand that your life has been affected significantly and dramatically. We know that you may not often enjoy life and cannot participate the way that you want to. We have been sick ourselves at times in our lives and will think of you as family forwarding our determination to help you. Although we cannot take your place, we remind ourselves each day what a gift life is and how much you value your life; your family, friends and interests.
Concierge, Communication & Choice
Our Concierge approach allows for you to make us aware via email, through our Blog, Twitter, Facebook, and consultations as well as through Skype or phone what your thoughts, feelings and concerns are. Few health care practices provide such a wide range of communication opportunities. We make ourselves available to you to maximize your road to wellness.
We not only use our Blood DetectiveTM technology, but we have available to you other technologies that help us gain greater insight and specifics regarding how to help you. For example, we use ultrasound rather than radiation for our bone density testing; we employ body composition testing as a “biomarker” test for morbidity and mortality prediction…so that we know if our positive results with you are potentially adding to your longevity by reducing your risk of dying prematurely from preventable health issues; by delaying their onset. We often use dozens of different biomarker tests so that we can demonstrate to you, and to us, that our and your efforts are helping you live well in the long term. We have many other technologies available to you that are described within the Services section of this website.
Investigative Research & Integrative Team Work
We pride ourselves on our ability to better our own knowledge, and thus your own, by researching your health issues even if we have dealt with your particular concerns many times before. This way, we make significant strides towards helping to set the standard in our profession and keep at pace with many healing and health opportunities. Medical data bases, providing continuing education to health care providers and Integrating all that we know “into the mix” allows us to maintain a high level of results and integrity.
Vitality – We practice what we preach!
Dr. Wald himself is a marathon runner completing his fastest marathon at age 47 in 3 hours and 44 minutes and his fastest half marathon in 1 hour and 34 minutes (and a few seconds). His time in his half marathon is faster than his fastest time achieved in the same race 10 years prior! This level of personal fitness and vitality exemplars that Dr. Wald is serious about what he does for himself and his patients. Dr. Wald is also a brown-belt in karate and enjoys weight lifting. Dr. Wald says, “My goal is to maintain and continually improve my health so that I can enjoy life to its fullest.”

“People call me the blood detective…
It all started when a grateful patient said to me, “Dr. Wald, you’re like a real life blood detective,” and the name stuck. Now I write two regular local newspaper columns called, “Ask the Blood Detective”, have a software program, an audio series and nutritional products with the Blood Detective name. I love being called a Blood Detective and I've taken on the responsibility that it embodies. When it comes to helping people get well, there is no end to the degree of investigation, study and commitment I bring to the table. I treat my patients with the same understanding, love and respect as I treat my immediate family."
“The big difference between Dr. Wald and other health care providers…
Dr. Wald’s approach often goes beyond ordinary health care by incorporating natural approaches to health and disease prevention. Dr. Wald integrates his wealth of knowledge and experience to design unique solutions for his patients that are original. He teaches other doctors and nutritionists, is an author of many books, is regularly interviewed by the news, travels the world lecturing and still maintains a full-time practice. “Dr. Wald, the Blood Detective software and Blood Detective Nutritional products have been an invaluable resource for me and my patients – Dr. Daniel Bies
Dr. Wald lives and thinks holistically and uses his perspective to integrate knowledge from many aspects of natural and traditional health care approaches.
“It is not enough to just be holistic in title” according to Dr. Wald. “One must have the training, tools and access to multiple therapies and approaches under one roof; if not, the person is led astray often wasting months and even years getting nowhere. I strongly believe that finding healing solutions that can be incorporated into one’s life is key. After all, what’s the point of giving healing advice that no one can realistically follow? I strive to create healing options that are workable for people. I eat well, juice everyday, run marathons, triathlons and practice martial arts because I can – and, I plan on extending my longevity and ability to do whatever it is I want to do for a very long time”.

More About Dr. Wald
I pursued a medical education so that I could be a better holistic doctor. I never intended to practice mainstream health care (medicine) and I have always believed that I was meant for something much more. I attended chiropractic school because this natural philosophy and practice is simply beautiful and it works. I had seen my father, Dr. George Wald also a chiropractor and nutritionist, heal all sorts of health issues where many traditional doctors had failed. A voracious learner, he loved to teach his patients and me about health and healing. My dad’s patients loved him and they let me know it when I was just s small boy. They would say to me, “Michael, without your father I do not know where I would be today – probably dead! Are you going to practice chiropractic and nutrition?” I would nod my head in response. Why wouldn’t I? My dad always inspired me and encouraged by my mother, who constantly gave me health books to read and inspired me. At one time, I was reading over ten books simultaneously…and loving every minute of it!
I went to nutrition school…
To learn new things, but mostly to just surround myself with this fascinating subject. I wanted to spend all of my time and energy finding ways to get people well as naturally as possible, so I read many books on various health topics everyday for years. My other passion was art (drawing), but slowly the study of health and nutrition won out.
About my medical school experience…
My chiropractic and nutritional training…did not include exposure to hospital-based disease care so I looked forward the experience of hospital rotations. Chiropractic students are required to work in a clinic treating entirely neuro-musculo-skeletal issues (and some nutrition).
I’d carry out medical rotations (not residency) in a variety of areas including, pediatrics, child psychology, adult psychiatry, radiology, cardiology, gastroenterology, internal medicine, psychiatry (similar to orthopedics) and other areas. I certainly learned a lot about hospital-based medicine and how very different it was than to office-based medicine and nutrition practice. My experience with medical rotations convinced me to help people preventatively with nutrition and natural approaches whenever possible. The combination of these varied experiences helped make me what I believe I am today, namely; a doctor with a talent for “putting it all together”, getting people well from a truly holistic and integrated perspective. The first two years of topics in medical school I had already been exposed to in chiropractic school so they was essentially review for me; with one important difference – in chiropractic school most of the subjects also included natural methods of treatment. Medical school’s entire focus was on the diagnosis, what medications and/or therapies to use.
I learned a great deal of nutrition during my four-year equivalent chiropractic education. My nutritional school education was almost entirely didactic, book stuff mostly, with some small exposure to patients with “real world problems”. In medical school, I was perhaps was exposed to the equivalent of two or three hours of nutritional topics within other courses of study… really, that was it!. Sometimes people ask me, “Dr. Wald why didn’t you become a medical doctor…a real doctor?” My answer is simply this; “I did not become a medical doctor because my passion is health care and not disease care.
People also sometimes ask, “Dr. Wald, couldn’t you have completed your medical residency and still practiced holistic medicine?”* My answer is usually this, “Yes, I could have completed a residency, but that would have involved spending an average four years (full time) focusing on hospital based medicine. I want to study natural health care and continue to help patients right now…and that’s exactly what I am doing!” And you know, I think that four years of doing something you don't love and have passion for is a waste of life.
